The Suit - State Theatre Company packages

Based on the novel written by Can Themba and banned in his native South Africa during the apartheid era, the production premiered in Paris and has since enthralled audiences and played to sell-out houses around the world.

Revenge is a dish best served cold, but it’s also one that can eat you alive — and the people you love. In the dusty heat of a 1950s South African township, a young worker returns home to find his wife in bed with her lover. The lover escapes, leaving behind his suit. In revenge, the betrayed husband instructs his wife to treat the suit as an honoured house guest. The suit becomes a constant and painful reminder of her infidelity and, through its presence, tension erupts, sorrow abides and the couple’s inability to heal is invoked. How long can she endure this cruel and pitiless punishment?
